Hi all,

I am trying to get more information on the Australian Counter Printed Stamps (CPS) that were issued in 1993.


In particular, I would like to know the production details, such as the type of printing used, the printer used, the type of paper used etc etc, as well as philatelic information such as the number of stamps printed.

(I remember reading somewhere that the information can be found in the relevant Australian Stamp Bulletins in 1993/1994, but unfortunately, the archives in Australia Post's website do not got back that far...)

Wonder if anyone is able to help. Thanks!

The Michel Automatenmarken-Spezial catalog includes this footnote about the set, "The ink of the value imprint is water soluble."
